Woody Scientific Sleep Award

Regulations

 

  1. In order to stimulate the exchange of results of scientific research, the Council of JellyCoe Ltd, producer of the Woody nightwear, has decided to offer a yearly scientific award for the most outstanding lecture concerning research in the field of sleep for children, or - by lack of such a lecture - research in the field of sleep in general. This lecture has to be given on the Autumn Meeting of the Belgian Association for Sleep research and Sleep medicine (BASS). The value of the prize is € 1,000 (minimum).
  2. Candidates are member of the Belgian Association for Sleep research and Sleep medicine (BASS). They are of Belgian nationality, or of foreign nationality with research work performed in Belgium, and they present their own research work. The candidate is less than 46 years old on the day of the presentation for the Woody Scientific Sleep Award.
  3. Each candidate can only present one lecture in the same meeting to be taken into account for the prize, but can apply again in future meetings. The jury can assign the prize only once to the same candidate.
  4. All summaries of the lectures (abstract max. 1 A4 page) which have been submitted to the secretariat of the BASS before the indicated deadline of this specific meeting are eligible for the prize, if the issue is related to the demanded field of research (see point 1). 
  5. The lectures are presented in English. The slides are in English as well. The abstract is written in English.
  6. The jury consists of the members of the Board of the Belgian Association for Sleep research and Sleep medicine (BASS), of representatives from Belgian universities which are no member of the BASS Board, or of invited foreign speakers. The president of BASS is also president of the jury. Candidates for the prize cannot sit in the jury.
  7. The jury of the Woody Scientific Sleep Award is the same as the one for the Andre Kahn Sleep Award. All contestants must be evaluated equally. The Woody Scientific Sleep Award is not granted simultaneously to the winner of the Andre Kahn Sleep Award, nor to the winner of the ApneuVL Research Award.
  8. If the first prize - the Andre Kahn Sleep Award - is granted to an original lecture concerning research in the field of sleep for children, the Woody Scientific Sleep Award will be assigned to the second-ranked speaker talking about that topic. Without such participation the prize goes to the second-ranked person talking about sleep in general.
  9. The selection of the laureate is based on two criteria : scientific content and presentation.
